Hey all, I’m assuming I’ll see you in Sydney for Supanova on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, right? Right?
I’m tabling at Table 05 (I think) and I’m apparently overloaded with comics you need to buy and read. Let’s go down them in order of whether you’ve got them yet or not.
HEADSPACE #1 – $5
The first time this will appear in print as a single issue, and possibly the only time. I thought it’d be fun to do the first issue up as a con exclusive, so we’ve got the full issue, plus back matter, plus the Brian Level pin up on the back. I’m incredibly proud of this book – available through Monkeybrain Comics on ComiXology right now with #3 dropping just this week, so head on over – and I think some people are going to love holding this in their hands. The print job has come out really nice.
THE MANY HAROLD HOLTS OF SPACE AND TIME – $3
The famous short by Louie Joyce and I comes to you as a special ashcan comic. If you ever wondered what happened to Harold Holt that fateful day we lost him in the waves, wonder no more. We have Atlantis, we have Russian jetpacks, we have aliens, and it’s all building to a royal rumble on Cheviot Beach of all the many Harold Holts of space and time. This, you will enjoy.
CAPTAIN HUMAN THE ROBOT – ALL AGES AND AFTER HOURS EDITS – $2 each
This book makes me smile like it’s my job. The same art by Jin Chan Yum Wai accompanies two wildly different stories. One for the kdidies wanting some Adventure Time style randomness and another for the more discerning adult who likes them grawlix and crude ‘tudes up on the page unrestrained. Or, y’know, both to compare how the hell I managed to script two different tales from the same art.
FATHERHOOD – $5
By now, odds are you already have this. My standby one-shot that still packs all the emotional feels you know me for. By it for someone else.
BLIND DATES AND BROKEN HEARTS – THE TRAGIC LOVES OF MATTHEW MURDOCK – $5
A 20k word treaty on the love life of Matt Murdock. Pretty much the apotheosis of who I am as a writer. And I only have a few copies left. I do believe I’ll sell out this weekend and then I’ll probably not restock for cons, so get in now.
LEE – $15
The fine folks at Crime Factory let me write about old man Lee Marvin street racing death in a short story in this rad collection. Another perfect personification of who I am as a writer. And the whole book is pulp tales about Lee Marvin, I’m pretty sure we all need this book in our life.
I’ll be at the table as much as humanly possible so I hope I’ll see you there, we can chat comics (I’ve been digging D4VE, SEX CRIMINALS, HAWKEYE, THE MASSIVE, STRANGE NATION, RAT QUEENS, DAREDEVIL, HIGH CRIMES, BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS, FIVE GHOSTS, FATALE and I’m so down with someone to chat HANNIBAL with, please).
It’s going to be a great weekend, I’ll see you there. Right?
